No one likes their most personal secrets being spilled, but in Christina Ricci's case, one of the most horrifying experiences of her adolescence ended up making the rest of her life a lot better!
The actress and former child star told the UK edition of Marie Claire in the April issue that growing up in front of the cameras was tough. One of the most difficult moments of her childhood was when someone outed her for having an eating disorder AFTER she had received treatment, explaining
"I use Proactiv because the lovely thing about my face now that I'm in my early 30s, I'm aging, but I'm also dealing with acne."

Christina Ricci was spotted leaving the gym on Saturday looking fit, firm, and fine!
If you remember, Christina had some body image issues in the past. Issues that resulted in covering mirrors and being uncomfortable in restaurants where she could catch her reflection.
It looks like she's still doing well in getting past that, as she appears to be in a very happy mood after a healthy work out!
Like we said before, everyone has varying degrees of body image issues — but it's all about not letting that control our lives!
We're so glad that things are going well for her!

Even beautiful celebrities have problematic body-image issues!
In a recent interview, Christina Ricci discussed how she suffered from anorexia after becoming famous at a very young age, and how she still has body-image issues as an adult.
"For years, I hated myself. I covered the mirrors in my house. I literally couldn't have a mirror in my room. I still can't sit in a restaurant or someplace where I can catch my reflection. I get so paranoid."
Christina said that her nude scene in the movie Black Snake Moan helped her shed some of her self-image issues.
"For that, I needed to lose any self-consciousness because I feel sometimes you can see that in a nude scene."
Everyone has body-image issues to some extent, but it’s important that we not let them control our lives. We’re glad Christina is getting over hers!
